Return to the trenches in R.C.Sherriff's powerful drama. Read More >

Against the background of life in the trenches of a group of officers behind British lines at St. Quentin, France, the characters live in a world of fear, disillusionment, precariousness, friendship, loyalty, naivety, guilt, and abandon.

When Journey’s End was first staged in 1929 it was dubbed the play that swept the world and did so like no other play of its time. Stanhope, a young Captain promoted beyond his years, prepares his men for a daring raid across No Man’s Land and an impending enemy attack. Based on Sherriff’s experience in the trenches, this outstanding play – with its humour, courage and fear – is as pertinent now as ever.
